The Home Secretary has published a new strategy to protect children from child sexual abuse.
The strategy sets out the government’s vision for preventing, tackling and responding to child sexual abuse in all its forms, whether it is committed in person or online, in families or communities, here in this country or overseas.
The strategy is based on the following three objectives:
objective 1: tackling all forms of child sexual abuse and bringing offenders to justice
objective 2: preventing offending and re-offending
objective 3: protecting and safeguarding children and young people, and supporting all victims and survivors
The strategy captures the government's long-term ambition to tackle this crime. It outlines the steps they are taking to respond and provides a framework for government to drive action across all agencies, all sectors and society as a whole to carry on strengthening the response to all forms of child sexual abuse.
